Aufzeichnungen zum Widerstand
NOTES ON RESISTANCE combines animations with non-fictional narration to portray a generation of resistance fighters. It investigates forms of resistance against fascism during the 1930’s and 1940’s in Austria, Spain and France. The main protagonist Harry Spiegel - wo died shortly before shooting of the movie started - tells parts of his life via audio tapes illustrated with drawn sketches and animations. In filmed interviews resistance fighters talk about their highly hazardous activities against the regimes of Franco, the Austro-fascists Dollfuss / Schuschnigg as well as Hitler.
